Healthy Living

Save 70 calories, 9 grams of fat and 5 grams of saturated fat per serving by preparing with extra lean ground beef, PHILADELPHIA Neufchatel Cream Cheese, 1/3 Less Fat than Cream Cheese and KRAFT 2% Milk Shredded Reduced Fat Cheddar Cheese.

Barbecue Shepherd's Pie

Prepare as directed, omitting the garlic and substituting 3/4 cup KRAFT Original Barbecue Sauce mixed with 1/2 tsp. onion powder for the gravy.

Shortcut

Use instant mashed potatoes. Prepare potatoes as directed on package, omitting the milk. This way when you add the cream cheese the potatoes stay fluffy.

My husband requested Shepherd's Pie, which is not usually one of my favorites. I tried this recipe and we BOTH loved it! I also added onions while cooking the ground beef and I used Idahoan Roasted Garlic Instant Mashed Potatoes, so I omitted the minced garlic … yummy. Definitely a keeper for us! Read More

I find that most Shepherds' pie although a wonderful dish is quite bland in flavor. I choose to add onion while cooking the meat and I also add sour cream and garlic salt along with the other ingredients in the potatoes....The favors are outstanding and it is requested over and over as my all time comfort dish.

The family loved this dish. Made some alterations, because i didn't have all ingredients. Instead of Cream cheese, i used a half can of Mushroom Soup (store brand), and a table spoon of sour cream. I used 3\4 cup of canned corn and canned carrots to mix with ground beef. Instead of garlic clove, i substituded garlic powder. I also added dried french onion soup mix and pepper to season. My family ate it all. Wish i had made a bigger dish. Read More

We love lots of flavor so when I cooked the meat I added garlic and onion. I also made the beef gravy with 1 cup of beef broth, boiled then added about a tablespoon on corn starch to some warm water, whisked and add to broth. Now add one package of Lipton soup beef and onion. Once this thickens add it to the meat and vegetables. I also used Idaho instant garlic mash potatoes. Lots of warm flavor on a cold night. It was a hit!! Read More
